Description of problem:
After installing Mozilla 1.4b from Raw Hide, I tried the suggestion listed at
http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/javalinux.html with JRE 1.4.1 RPM downloaded from Sun.
Mozilla does not recognise the plugin and it is not listed when viewing
Downgrading JRE 1.4.1 to JRE 1.3.1, also downloaded from Sun and applying the
suggestion again, still the Java plugin is not detected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade Mozilla in RH9 to the Mozilla in Raw Hide
2. Java plugin not detected
3. Upgrade JRE, Java plugin stil not detected
Actual Results: Java plugin not detected
Expected Results: Java plugin must be detected
This is in the release notes of Mozilla! You need a java plugin that is compiled
with gcc 3.2. Blackdown has one for 1.4.1. Sun has a 1.4.2beta that has both.
You need to link the 3.2 one to your plugins directory.
Resolving as NOTABUG.
